I recently started seeing a little empty double frame about like two business cards one above the other in LJ posts. I first noticed it in blogs and today I found it in a post, this one. When I right clicked on it and selected “inspect element” It says it is some sort of facebook frame.
I’m no cyber-whiz. Anybody else seeing these or any suggestions why I am?
Any tips on getting rid of it?

Thanks

I am seeing the same blank frames. It s most certainly annoying and causes me to just click away from that page.
someone else recently commented on the same frames and they disappeared for a short time.

I just noticed it when trying to view this jewelry chest by Devin…It is blocking out part of his text description. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/64563

Whoever wrote the advertisement didn’t properly close the html tags or the stylesheets used have incorrect positioning for placement. Or a combination of both. I’ve seen this before and its usually a simple close tag thats missing from the html. Nothing to worry about but yeah its annoying.

I’ve been getting it too off and on. Glad to know what it is. Now I hope they can fix it. Are you sending a heads up Paul?

I think this is the same problem that was reported here.

I’ve been doing some investigation, and it appears to happen only on entries (projects and blogs) that are either long, or contain multiple pictures. I’m sniffing through the code and I’m guessing at this point that something is wrong with someone’s “adjacency” code – “insertAdjacent” looks suspicious.

I’ve seen them on my own blog entries, older ones that were fine before so it’s not something that was is caused at the time of posting. It’s something that has more recently been popping up here and there sometimes in older posts.
Mike , no I haven’t but I will send a link to this post to Martin now.

I see the same thing Paul. The one I see is like a magnifying glass and I can see the stuff behind it but not in the last day or two.

If you have blocking on, it does not show up. I can see them when I turn blocking off.

Contact the LJs Systems Administratior and give him/her your 2 cents. Looks like LJs wants a facebook presence.
